Beauty Solutions: Fuller or Thinner Lips?

Makeup for lips can accomplish many different beauty objectives. Follow these tips to use lipstick, lip liner, or a lip gloss makeup set to make thin lips look fuller or to downplay full lips.

Lasting Finish Lipstick

For Fuller Lips
Plump up thin lips by selecting a lip color that is not too dark. Peaches and light pinks that are close to your skin tone work well for fair-skinned women, while browns, taupes and beiges work for a dark or olive complexions.

Line the very outside edge of your lips with a lip liner just one shade darker than your selected lipstick. Don’t go outside the lines or it will look fake and "drawn on.”

Apply lipstick or lip stain, starting from the bow of your lips and working outward. Then use a tissue to blot excess. Add a second, lighter color (this can be a gloss or a lipstick) in just the center of your upper and lower lips.

You can find all the colors you need in a coordinated set.


To Downplay Full Lips
Full lips benefit from darker colors. If you have a plump, luscious kisser, then by all means, flaunt it! Depending on your skin tone, choose wine, berry, cherry red, chocolate brown, or any other bold and beautiful color.

Choose a lip liner one shade darker than your lipstick, and apply around the inner edge of your lips. Apply lipstick or stain, and finish with gloss to make your lips dewy and kissable.
